The Trials of a Solo Sailor

Lee Winters has been solo sailing out of Texas for the last two years on a voyage to help the children of the world. He did not have very much background in the ways of the sea but found a great boat, worked hard on her to get her ready and then set off. Here is a great video of his first leg thru the Gulf of Mexico to Isla Mujeres, MX. You get a good feel of the terror, frustration and lack of sleep that you encounter on a solo voyage. He has made it all the way to NZ! For more, go to his website.
